Diabetes can have a significant impact on foot health due to its potential to cause nerve damage (neuropathy) and poor circulation. Nerve damage can result in loss of sensation, making it difficult to detect injuries or foot problems. Poor circulation can lead to slower wound healing and an increased risk of infections.
At The Foot Room, we specialise in providing comprehensive foot care for individuals with diabetes. Our team of skilled podiatrists understands the unique challenges faced by those with diabetes and offers specialised services to help you maintain healthy feet.
Regular foot examinations are essential for early detection of any foot-related complications. During these examinations, we assess the sensation, circulation, and overall condition of your feet. By detecting issues early, we can intervene promptly and prevent them from progressing into more serious problems.
We provide education and guidance on proper foot care practices for individuals with diabetes. This includes recommendations on daily foot hygiene, appropriate footwear, and strategies for preventing foot injuries. We can also offer advice on managing calluses, corns, and other common foot conditions that may arise.
In the case of diabetic foot ulcers or wounds, our team would refer you immediately to the urgent NHS podiatrists who employ advanced wound care techniques to promote healing and prevent infections. They work closely with your healthcare team to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and helps prevent complications.
Our podiatry clinic is committed to providing holistic care, considering not only the physical aspects but also the emotional and psychological well-being of our patients. We strive to create a supportive environment where you feel comfortable discussing your concerns and receiving personalised care.
If you have diabetes or you are pre-diabetic, taking proactive steps to care for your feet is crucial. Book an appointment with The Foot Room today and let our dedicated team help you maintain healthy feet and minimise the risks associated with diabetes.Book now
